  • Well, this museum was nice. It is a small museum. If naval history is where your interest lies, you will definitely enjoy it. It has a lot of information to soak up. Many of the exhibits have long pas...  more »

  • It is a great place to visit if you want to learn something about the naval part of the Civil War. It isn't free, but nothing in this world is free. It cost money to operate and maintain all these artifacts. The cost to get in isn't all that expensive. I bought more in the gift store then it cost me to get into the museum.
  • Very interesting place. A lot of civil war history here. We took our daughters on a Sunday and had a great time. Several original items that had been preserved. And it isn't all about the confederacy. I learned a good bit that day. Definitely worth the price of admission.
  • IS IT FREE? I want to know cause it looks fun to go, but I want to know if it is free to go, or do you have to pay to get in the building.
  • Great museum. Some of the most intersting displays you'll find about a little written about aspect of the Civil War.
  • Lots of interesting artefacts and we'll put together displays. Worth the money.
